Kindergarten hairstyles can be a lot of fun, and most kids are comfortable to sit for longer periods of time while you try out cool things like dragon braids and buns. Thanks to YouTube and Pinterest, it’s easy to find some great ideas for hairstyles and make them your own. Here are some of my favorites I’ve tried out so far.
This is a really cool, fun hairstyle that kindergarteners and older kids love. It can take a little practice, but it’s essentially like having a French braid with cool scales. Check out this step-by-step tutorial to help you create this awesome braid. The best part, with the holiday season coming up, this is a cool hairstyle for each holiday! Your daughter is sure to love this one, especially if she is planning on dressing up for Halloween!
The Twisted Pony
I love this one because it’s two days with one hairstyle. Anything that keeps me from needing to spend a long amount of time doing my daughters hair is always a blessing. What I love about the twisted pony is how easy it is to do. You just need to a high ponytail, separate it into four parts and then twist the two strands into each other. Use a rubber band to hold it in place while you finish up the other sections. Use two rope braids and twist them up into a cool bun for day one, let it down for day two! Or you can keep the two twisted rope braids and then let them all out on the second day for a beautiful wavy look. Here’s a good tutorial to help you work on your twisted pony.
Do you ever run around in the mornings trying to get everyone off and ready for school, only to see your daughter casually stroll by with bed head? That seems to be at least one or two mornings in my house! No matter how often I remind her to at least brush her hair, she rarely makes a big effort to make it look cute and stylish. So, the go-to around here is a simple single braid. I love this one because it’s easy to do and it looks like a headband, so it helps to keep some hair out of her face throughout the day. Do a small braid, tuck it and secure it in place with a bobby pin and she is on her way to school!
When the cold winter weather hits, I get pretty excited about dressing my kids up in beanies and adorable winter gear. A beanie is a great way to hide some rocking bed head, and it’s a great way to help prevent your kids from getting too cold! Check out the latest beanies we have created to not only handle the cold air but to keep your kids looking fashionable!

I’ll admit it, when my kids started getting older I was ecstatic to try out all these cute hairstyles, but I quickly found out it was not easy! When it comes to preschoolers, you get to have a little more fun with the hairstyles. Most preschoolers aren’t as frustrated and upset about having their hair done but don’t expect them to keep it looking great all day. Preschoolers are notorious for running and playing constantly., which means a lovely half-braided rat’s nest by the end of the evening. Here are some no-fail, fun hairstyles for your preschoolers.
One simple go-to hairstyle I use all the time is the waterfall braid. To get started, brush out your preschooler's hair so its soft and doesn’t have any tangles. Part the hair down the middle and then start on either side of the head with two sections of hair. Now you will cross one section of hair over another, moving it away from the face. Next, take a new section of hair and have it “fall” over the piece you just pulled from the face. That piece is essentially done as it’s not falling through your first twist. You want to take the bottom section of hair and take it over the waterfall hair. Next, grab another section of hair and repeat the over/under process until you are half-way around the head. You should be around the end of the hair you started with, just make an easy three section braid to tie off this section. Pin up this hair with a couple bobby pins and have it cross under the hair on the other side of the head. You want to take the hair on the left side and repeat this same process. Drop those layers and look at how adorable the hair turned out!
Want to know one of my favorite hairstyles for my daughter? I love hot curlers and Velcro curlers, they make it incredibly easy to add some curl to her hair. You can do the Velcro curlers or foam curlers at night after a bath, they are soft and easy to sleep on. Hot curlers work great on second-day hair. Use a little mouse to give the curlers something to help hold the curl and place the hot curlers in the hair for about ten minutes or so, it depends on the body of her hair. Take them out, tug a little to give it a cute, stylish curl and she’s ready to hit the town! Don’t forget to accessorize with some of our favorite bracelets and necklaces.
Looney Braid with Microbraids
That morning rush is the worst for getting preschoolers hair ready and headed out the door! Cute hairstyles don’t need to be these complex masterpieces. In fact, it’s pretty easy to dress up any preschoolers hair with a fun scrunchie. A Loony Braid is a fun hairstyle, that’s quick and easy to do. It’s a braid with two strands that are small and then you have a large one. The fun part is braiding them all together and you have this cool set of braids that are uneven, but stylish. Learn how to do this awesome hairstyle with this walk-through guide.
